Ha anyone attempted to restore/rechrome a 66 day/night mirror? I've seen a few that are not too bad, but would require rechrome for what I'm doing. The NOS one on the auction site is at $280 now!-A bit beyond what I want to spend!
Actually, I'm pretty sure those mirrors are stainless steel. If you rechrome it you will lose the brushed texture in the center. The chrome repops look like cheap Chinese toys from the '60s. $280 is a LOT of $$$ for one. Keep looking and you'll find one cheaper. Look at Fairlanes, Falcons, Galaxies, and the Mercurys. Some are exactly the same except for the mount. You can rechrome your mount and reinstall it in another Ford model with a little "wiggling".
Just be careful getting the original glass out and back in.
